We are no longer accepting applications for the 2024-25 school year.
Applications DO NOT roll over from year to year; so please fill out an application for each school year. There is no application fee.
We would love to meet you and talk about Montessori, Wildflower and Azalea! Please email us at email@example.com if you have any questions.
Azalea Primary (preschool and kindergarten) will host tours on Thursday, October 3, 2024, at 6:00 pm and on Sunday, November 3, 2024, at 1:00 pm. Our entrance is located off Lincoln Avenue. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for information on elementary tour dates.
Meeting the Teacher Leaders and visiting Azalea is an important step in our enrollment process. We feel it is important to connect the family, child, teachers, and environment to create an intentional and meaningful community.
1. Attend a Family Tour or reach out to us at email@example.com for information.
2. Please fill out an application. Please click here for our online application. Please contact an Azalea teacher-leader to request a paper copy.
3. After you attend a tour, Teacher Leaders will communicate with you next steps in the enrollment process. A $100 enrollment fee is required upon receipt of all enrollment materials.
Affording Azalea Montessori
At Azalea Montessori School we believe educational opportunities should be available to families in our community regardless of financial means. Our goal is to create sustainable pathways that provide at least 30 percent or more of our school population with tuition assistance based on financial need.
We participate in the Publicly Funded Child Care program offered through Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services. Information about the program and eligibility requirements can be found here: ODJFS Child Care information.
We are a provider of the Ed Choice Scholarships from the Ohio Department of Education. More information on the program and eligibility requirements can be found here: Ed Choice Scholarship Eligibility
Our 2024-2025 primary full day tuition rate is $8,295 which is consistent with other private Montessori schools in the area.
We have a small number of part-time spots available both in the Montessori classroom and in Azalea Grows, our Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings-only outdoor program.
The cost of 2/days/week (full days) is $3,484
The cost of 3 days/week (full days) is $5,500
The Azalea Grows rate is $3,465
After care is offered from 3:00 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tuition is $8 per hour of use.
The tuition rate for Azalea is intended to be an “all inclusive” rate and we do not add required extra fees or additional donations on top of the tuition rate. Financial transparency is important to us, so please know that whatever the tuition rate, it will be the true cost of educating your child.
We shall walk together on this path of life, for all things are part of the universe and are connected to each other to form one whole unity.
- Dr. Maria Montessori
